Beautiful Fact was a pleasant commission to work on. For this book I did the layout, the illustrations and the binding.
It is a binding for a collection of loveletters and -poems, a gift from a lover to his mistress. It has soft, flexible leather covers, lined with green suede. The cherry blossoms and the birds are slightly raised to the touch (cushioned onlays). The branches are blind tooled and painted dark gold. The book is housed in a green silk pouch.
